The most popular of the Chinese Silver coins is the Panda.
The Chinese Silver Panda coin is a series of silver bullion coins issued by the People’s Bank of China. The design of the panda is changed every year. Starting in 2016, Pandas switched to metric sizes. The 1 troy ounce coin was reduced to 30 grams. There is also a Gold Panda series issued featuring the same designs as the Silver Panda coins.
The obverse always bears the image of the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests, the earliest building of The Temple of Heaven in Beijing. It is a massive site of worship and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This round roofed palace is where the emperor held worship ceremonies, praying for good weather and abundant harvests. The coins border band carries the Chinese characters for “People’s Republic of China” with the year of issue at the base.
The first Silver Panda coins were issued in 1983, and they have become one of the most popular silver coins in the world. The coins are popular among collectors and investors alike, and they are also seen as a symbol of China’s economic growth and prosperity.
